Notes and Editorial Reviews

The Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1962. Principal conductors over the years include the well-known names Hiroshi Wakasugi, Heinz Rogner, Gerd Albrecht, and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski. Sylvain Cambreling joined the YNSO in April 2010 as the ninth Principal Conductor and has energetically pursued a broad range of activities. The French-born conductor is a musician with big ideas. A thought-provoking, colorful and dramatic artist, he has a flair for grabbing the attention of audiences, yet his originality is rooted in thorough knowledge of musicology. Following the initial release of this album, in March 2015, the YNSO embarked on its first European tour in 12 years, with concerts scheduled in vibrant classical music centers Read more such as Berlin, Cologne and Brussels. The tour was met with astounding aplomb. Read less
